http://www.socialism.com/drupal-6.8/ Freedom Socialist Party advises do not check off re 28 or 29. They both are dupes toward democratic process, having nothing at all to do with making it better for us all.
A MAJOR PART of Prop 14 is that the way we used to retain ballot status was by getting 2% of the vote for one of our candidates every four years in a year when Governor is voted on, the year not a Presidential candidate is running. The only way we now can retain ballot status is by obtaining qualifying registration numbers - 1% of the number of voters in that election in 2014. That means that everyone in California could vote for our P&FP candidates but we still couldn't remain on the ballot if we didn't have at least that 1% registration - say 101,000 when 10,100,000 Californians vote, a likely number.
We are barely able to approach that number. Green has it, now. Green is for sustainability, which is not sustainable, certainly not sustainable by the process proposed by Green - everyone open a small business.
